The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland won't tickle anyone much above the age of 6.

Older kids weaned on Sesame Street might get a kick of nostalgia at the sight of Big Bird, Maria, the Count and all.

An appeal that tops out at about age 4.

The character is bereft of subtlety, the lessons are simple, loud, and clear, and there is a suprising dearth of comedy.

The film is nothing if not benign, but its merits are moot for those above 7 or so.
